New Bethel District Rep

September 10, 2015

Andrew Weis has decided to step down as the District Rep due to time constraints coaching two teams and having another kid in U6. We thank Andrew for his two years of service as BYSA District Rep and wish him and his teams much success. Cam Morgan will be taking over as District Rep for the remainder of the season. Cam has been with BYSA for 20+ years, starting when he was a U6 player, and now coaching his siblings and refereeing games. 

Our next BYSA board meeting will be on Wednesday, October 7th at 7pm.  We hope to have the meeting at the Legion or at the fields. This is your soccer organization, and this is a great time to get involved with the future of your child's soccer organization.

Field Lining, Concessions, Parking and 3v3

August 26, 2015

The Concession Schedule and Field Lining Schedule is now posted for the 2015 Fall Soccer Season.  With the number of teams in BYSA, each coach is only responsible for 1 two hour concession duty and 1 field lining during the season.  Thank you Joanna, Chris and Aaron for concession and lining during week 1 play.  BYSA ask parents to please help your coach out and volunteer for these scheduled times. Your coach dedicates countless hours to coaching your kid, please help return the generosity.

Parking: Parking is always at a premium at the Legion Fields but please help out by following these suggestions. Do not park at the turnaround at the end of Legion Lane. This is for turnaround only!  The American Legion paved lot should only be used for overflow parking. The gravel lot and Legion Lane should always be your first options. When parking on Legion Lane, please park at a diagonal. Parallel Parking takes up twice the space and limits access down the lane. Thank You!

3V3 Tourney: Due to lack of interest, the 3v3 Beat the Heat tournament on Labor Day weekend has been cancelled. All teams will be refunded in full. 

Team Pictures: Don't forget to schedule your team pictures before the cold weather and early sunsets rolls in. The two week break coming up between weeks 2 and 3 is a perfect time to schedule your team shots. A list of photographers in the Bethel area can be found under the Photographers link.

-must have 2 people in stand. no kids under 14 


- if you prefer, you can opt out of your time for a fee of $32 a shift and I will have people work it. Money must be paid up front and I would like to know the week before. (by Thursday this week) I am at the fields most nights.


-these schedules do not include tournaments. Those are split up between the teams who are home. This year it is BU9, GU12, and as of right now U6. I am trying to get kids who need service hours to cover those. I will let you know if I get them and you can let me know if you have someone that needs hours. (ex. Boy scouts, girl scouts, AHG, NHS, church, etc.)

Concussion Training Mandated by State Law for ALL COACHES AND REFEREES

A new Ohio law mandates that all coaches, assistant coaches, and referees to obtain specialized training in recognizing the symptoms of concussions and head injuries every three years. Click here for a summary of the requirements for coaches and umpires.

BYSA requires every coach, assistant coach, and referee to successfuly complete the free online concussion training prior the first game. The training will take less than 30 minutes and will require that you print a certificate of completion at the conclusion of the video.

Heads Up: Concussion in Youth Sports is a free, online course available to coaches, parents, and others helping to keep athletes safe from concussion. It features interviews with leading experts, dynamic graphics and interactive exercises, and compelling storytelling to help you recognize a concussion and know how to respond if you think that your athlete might have a concussion. Once you complete the training and quiz, you must print out the certificate, and provide a copy to BYSA.
